What is Visitor Insurance and Why Do Your Parents Need It? 

Visitor insurance is a type of travel medical insurance policy that enables foreign travelers to get coverage for illness or injury during their stay in another country. There are many types of plans, each with varying levels of coverage. We recommend your parents stay covered under a dependable visitor insurance plan. After all, the health and safety of your family is a top priority. Visitor insurance plans typically cover hospitalization costs, surgery, prescription drugs and an ambulance ride. Sometimes, it’s smart to get evacuation insurance as well, in case of an emergency and you have to be transported back to your home country. 

Government-sponsored plans rarely provide adequate coverage. In the event of an emergency, comprehensive travel medical insurance is imperative.

You’ll want to purchase insurance for parents visiting the USA—and here’s why: 

  • Your parents deserve to have high-quality care in the event of an emergency.
  • Simple accidents and illnesses happen all the time. S. hospitals, urgent care centers, and other medical treatment facilities require payment. And without insurance, you will be paying the full cost out-of-pocket.
  • Visitor insurance can cover evacuation. If they need to be evacuated, your visitor insurance provider can work out the details and cover the evacuation costs.
  • As a resident, you may be held liable. If your parents are faced with unexpected medical bills, you may be responsible for paying.
  • U.S. insurance plans have limitations. You cannot add your parents to your health insurance plans; they will need separate visitor’s insurance coverage.

How to Choose Insurance for Parents Visiting the USA—and What to Consider 

There are many policies for you to consider. And you’ll want to take your parent’s age and health into consideration before you decide on a plan. There are two major types of visitor medical insurance plans: fixed coverage and comprehensive coverage. While fixed coverage plans are cheaper, they provide limited coverage. That’s why we recommend comprehensive coverage plans. While they are more expensive, they provide much better coverage, which is very important for individuals over the age of 50. 

Atlas America and Patriot America Plus are two popular plans to consider. 

Simply fill out the form at the top of this page and we’ll help you find the best visitor insurance for parents visiting the USA—a plan available according to your parent’s needs and preferences. Be sure to consult your parents before purchasing. You will be required to provide medical information and multiple forms of identity. Most visitor insurance plans will cover your parents for as little as 5 days, and as many as 364. Some policies offer extensions. 

If your parents happen to have any pre-existing medical conditions, be sure to purchase travel insurance that covers pre-existing conditions (at least to an extent). While most plans do not cover pre-existing conditions, there are a few that cover acute onset of pre-existing conditions. Acute onset is defined as a sudden recurrence or outbreak of a previously diagnosed condition that occurs without warning. An existing condition could be chronic or nonchronic. Be sure to understand which insurance policies can cover acute onset of preexisting conditions like high blood pressure, cholesterol ,diabetes  and heart attack which are considered chronic conditions.  Seeking a travel insurance cover for pre-existing medical conditions such as these will help pay medical bills in case of an emergency.
